Sugiuchi has agreed to a one-year, 500 million yen contract to remain with the Yomiuri Giants, the Kyodo news service reports. He was 11-6 with a 3.35 ERA last season with a 149:49 K:BB ratio in 153 innings.
He's been one of the top pitchers in Japan, but it's not clear he has the velocity to succeed if he moved to MLB. Sugiuchi has enough service time for international free agency, but he may never try to move to MLB since he's signed through 2015, and by then he'll be 36 years old.
